We had our friends' kids over last night, and 8 year old Claudia asked if we had time to make an owl pillow. My first thought was, "No, we don't,", but then I thought we might as well start and see how far we get, and sure enough, we finished it. This little girl has a bit of a reputation for being energetic and impulsive, so at first it might seem like sewing with her would be a challenge. But she is also fearless and decisive, which is helpful for lots of things, but especially choosing fabrics. And once she starts sewing, she is pretty determined...on our last project I finally had to MAKE her take a cookie break so I would get a break :-) It's great to see young people excited about sewing!
I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing. After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now starting to design kits and patterns Some of these are now available from Keepsake Quilting also. I teach classes at a local quilt shop, The Material Girls, and would love to do more traveling and teaching eventually. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
